Very good vintage condition. The underarms of the jacket and dress both show some discoloration. The zipper has some steam stressing in the waist area. There are a few marks on the inside back of the skirt. Also, the dress is made from slub silk, so there is some slight ribbing in some parts of the fabric (not a flaw, but worth mentioning). Please see photos.  I haven't attempted to wash this piece. Regardless of these flaws, the piece presents beautifully and has been priced accordingly.
